This has probably came as no surprise considering you may already know how much of a fan I am of Crossfit as a Sport. I could name and identify big members of the Crossfit community, watch just about every Event and know the majority of moves .. however trying it out showed just how hard these moves ans skills are! I attended my First Crossfit Class in September and never had the chance to go back after recovering from my Kiltwalk Marathon. After that came the build up the Christmas, Christmas itself and ofcourse the New Year! I was annoyed… View Post

I finally did it! After all these months of speaking about it to folk and debating whether or not to go, I finally went to a Crossfit Box. My friend at work Kirsty goes to ULT Crossfit in Ayr – a little further than some of the boxes near me but a lot cheaper and well run – and let me tag along for a night!

Lots of people, bloggers, PTs and exercise experts have encouraged a lot of people to take ‘progress pictures’ rather than focusing on the scales! I always fancied this idea as I see a lot of transformation pictures over social media and the people always look amazing!

Last year Jamie decided to do Insanity and I encouraged (forced more like ha) him to have some progress pictures taken. Jamie has a slim frame similar to mine, but after looking back at the photos when… View Post
